OBJECTIVES: To identify independent risk factors that differentiate gout from pseudogout in patients that present with crystal-induced acute arthritis. METHODS: This cross-sectional study was conducted at Siriraj Hospital (Bangkok, Thailand) during the 25 May 2014-28 November 2014 study period. Patients who presented with crystal-induced acute arthritis were eligible for inclusion. Diagnosis of gout or pseudogout was made by microscopic visualization and analysis of crystals in synovial fluid...

Background: The current case report is the first in the literature to report the association between parathyroidectomy and an episode of probable pseudogout in the foot in a patient with diabetes mellitus. Case presentation: The authors present a case of pseudogout of the left foot following a subtotal parathyroidectomy in an 80-year-old female with type 2 diabetes mellitus and primary hyperparathyroidism. Pseudogout, also known as calcium pyrophosphate dehydrate deposition disease, is an unusual metabolic sequela following parathyroidectomy...

This is a rare case of tuberculosis (TB) complicated with pseudogout of the wrist joint in a non-immunocompromised 84-year-old female with a history of pulmonary tuberculosis. She was diagnosed with extrapulmonary tuberculosis of the wrist based on a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) study and synovial fluid aspiration in which the cytology was positive for acid-fast bacilli. Calcium pyrophosphate was also positive. We must be careful not to miss articular tuberculosis as it may mimic common inflammatory arthritis, such as pseudogout of the wrist...

We report a case of calcium pyrophosphate dihydrate deposition disease (CPDD) involving a patient on maintenance hemodialysis (MHD). The 32-year-old man presented in August 2016 with a complaint of left shoulder swelling of 8 months' duration with no trauma or fever. He was diagnosed with nephrotic syndrome in 1998, which progressed to ESRD. He commenced MHD in 2012. Examination at our hospital revealed a soft nontender swelling of the left shoulder. Blood biochemistry showed elevated serum urate, phosphate, β2 microglobulin, and parathyroid hormone...

The WHO reports that one of the major chronic conditions affecting the elderly worldwide is musculoskeletal disorders that are associated with long-term pain and disability. Considering the healthcare needs of the elderly (i.e. comprehensive, accessible, efficient) and the advantages of ultrasound (US) use (patient-friendly, convenient, cost-effective, and does not require exposure to radiation or magnetic fields), there seems to be a 'gap' in the actual clinical practice. In this paper, we aimed to highlight the potential value of US imaging in the management of the elderly with a wide spectrum of musculoskeletal conditions (degenerative/rheumatic joint diseases, falls/trauma, nursing care, peripheral nerve problems, sarcopenia, and interventions)...

Pseudogout is a form of acute calcium pyrophosphate deposition (CPPD) disease that typically afflicts the elderly. CPPD commonly involves larger joints, such as the knees, wrists, shoulders, and hips, and has been known to involve the spine. The authors report the case of a 66-year-old woman with a recent history of lumbar laminectomy and fusion who presented 5 weeks postprocedure with a clinical and radiographic picture consistent with multilevel skip lesions involving the cervical and thoracic spine, thoracic discitis, and epidural abscess...

Evaluation for suspected inflammatory arthritis as a cause for chronic extremity joint pain often relies on imaging. This review first discusses the characteristic osseous and soft tissue abnormalities seen with inflammatory arthritis and how they may be imaged. It is essential that imaging results are interpreted in the context of clinical and serologic results to add specificity as there is significant overlap of imaging findings among the various types of arthritis. This review provides recommendations for imaging evaluation of specific types of inflammatory arthritis, including rheumatoid arthritis, seronegative spondyloarthropathy, gout, calcium pyrophosphate dihydrate disease (or pseudogout), and erosive osteoarthritis...

Balázs Rada
Neutrophil extracellular traps represent a fascinating mechanism by which PMNs entrap extracellular microbes. The primary purpose of this innate immune mechanism is thought to localize the infection at an early stage. Interestingly, the ability of different microcrystals to induce NET formation has been recently described. Microcrystals are insoluble crystals with a size of 1-100 micrometers that have different composition and shape. Microcrystals have it in common that they irritate phagocytes including PMNs and typically trigger an inflammatory response...

Oral bisphosphonates are the most commonly used drugs to treat postmenopausal osteoporosis. Acute pseudogout is anecdotally reported to occur following bisphosphonate initiation but empirical data are lacking. We investigated whether treatment with oral bisphosphonates is a risk factor for incident acute pseudogout.A matched case-control study was undertaken using data from the UK-Clinical Practice Research Datalink. Adults who consulted for incident acute pseudogout between 1987 and 2012 were each matched for gender, age at pseudogout diagnosis, and general practice to up to 4 control subjects without pseudogout...

Postoperative pseudogout after total knee arthroplasty (TKA) is very rare, and its physical findings are very similar to infectious symptoms. In pseudogout, the mechanism underlying the deposition of calcium pyrophosphate dehydrate crystals remains unclear. Here, we report the histologic findings in a pseudogout attack in the late postoperative period after TKA. She had acute onset of arthritis of the knee 2 years after TKA. Histologic examination showed significant neutrophil infiltration. Interestingly, chondrogenesis was noted in the synovial tissue, and calcium pyrophosphate dehydrate crystals were synthesized mainly at the site of chondrogenesis, suggesting a potential mechanism underlying the occurrence of pseudogout after TKA...

OBJECTIVES: Calcium pyrophosphate crystal deposition disease (CPPD) is common, yet prevalence and overall clinical impact remain unclear. Sensitivity and specificity of CPPD reference standards (conventional crystal analysis (CCA) and radiography (CR)) were meta-analysed by EULAR (published 2011). Since then, new diagnostic modalities are emerging. Hence, we updated 2009-2016 literature findings by systematic review and evidence grading, and assessed unmet needs. METHODS: We performed systematic search of full papers (PubMed, Scopus/EMBASE, Cochrane 2009-2016 databases)...

Pseudogout is a crystal-induced arthropathy characterized by the deposition of calcium pyrophosphate dihydrate (CPPD) crystals in synovial fluid, menisci, or articular cartilage. Although not very common, this entity can be seen in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). Septic arthritis due to Mycobacterium avium-intracellulare (MAI) is a rare entity that can affect immunocompromised patients such as those with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) or those who are on immunosuppressive drugs. Here, we describe a 51-year-old female who presented with fever, right knee pain, swelling, warmth, and decreased range of motion for several days...

Crowned dens syndrome (CDS), a pseudogout attack involved with atlantoaxial joint, mimics meningitis, because jolt accentuation of headache, a physical sign for meningitis, is frequently considered mistakenly as 'positive' in CDS patients. Our patient with CDS experienced multiple ambulance transports and underwent lumbar puncture for suspected meningitis because of positive result of jolt accentuation of headache. We found that the patient actually had jolt accentuation of neck pain from CDS and treated her successfully...

A case of tophaceous pseudogout (i.e., calcium pyrophosphate dihydrate (CPPD) crystal deposition disease) in the temporomandibular joint (TMJ), extending to the base of the skull, is reported. A 38-year-old man was referred to the hospital with mild pain in the right chin and tip of the tongue. Panoramic radiography showed a large calcified mass around the right TMJ. Computed tomography imaging revealed a large, granular, calcified mass surrounding the right condylar head and extending to the base of the skull...

BACKGROUND: Calcification of the yellow ligament sometimes compresses the spinal cord and can induce myelopathy. Usually, the calcification does not induce acute neck pain. We report a case of a patient with acute neck pain caused by calcium pyrophosphate dihydrate in a calcified cervical yellow ligament. CASE PRESENTATION: A 70-year-old Japanese woman presented with acute neck pain. She had a moderately high fever (37.5 °C), and her neck pain was so severe that she could not move her neck in any direction...

Acute calcium pyrophosphate deposition (CPPD) arthropathy, also called pseudogout, is common, and becomes more prevalent as patients age. The presenting symptoms are similar to both gout and septic arthritis but may be treated differently. This article describes a typical patient presentation and management from an emergency medicine and orthopedic surgery standpoint.

Tumoral pseudogout is a rare clinical form of calcium pyrophosphate dihydrate crystal deposition disease. Tumoral pseudogout can mimic other diseases such as chondroid tumor, tophaceous gout, or tumoral calcinosis. Its radiological features have been presented in some case reports, but no specific radiographic features have been identified. Here, we report an unusual case of recurrent tumoral pseudogout involving the proximal interphalangeal joint of the right long finger. This case presents with progressive radiological findings of the disease with an enlarging and recurrent calcified mass and secondary bony erosion and remodeling, along with a radiological-pathological correlation...
